An autobiographical documentary by two women traveling from Egypt to Germany

“Wanderlust, cuerpos en tránsito” is an autobiographical documentary by two women about their journey by land and sea from Egypt to Germany. Two women from different origins (Argentina-Germany) presenting two perspectives of the same trip. Crossing 13 borders and 14 countries they investigate the “female body in transit,” the way they relate to the people they meet, different landscapes and various cultural, economic and religious contexts. Through interviews between themselves and also with other people whom they met on the road, they explore their own experience as women travelers.

Wanderlust accompanies two women, from different origins, on their journey by land and water from Egypt to Germany. As they set out to investigate the experience of the female traveler they focus on their own perspective of crossing places and spaces, emphasizing how the experience of traveling with a woman’s body is different from traveling with a man’s body. Wanderlust is a filmic journey from Africa to Europe that invites you to take a leap and to discover, as few films do, the beginning of a friendship between two women.
